5:34pm
this long testimony secretary clinton was grilled about last september's attack of the diplomatic compound in benghazi. this was a scathing review of procedures. >> not or surprising that this was a difficult day. things got hiheated. it >> the secretary of state to new that it was going to be a long day. angry and sometimes on the verge of tears, secretary of state hillary clinton delivers an emotional account of the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three others in in that long-awaited testimony on capitol hill.clinton was grilled on the attack last september on the diplomatic compound in benghazi. scathing review of state dept. procedures.
5:35pm
>> it's not surprising that a pattern emerged over the 5 and a half hours the secretary of state was questioned today. democrats gushing over her. republicans - with some very tough questions. things got heated. and clinton got angry. the secretary of state knew this was going to be a long day. she and the state department - accused of not doing enough to protect embassy workers. not making sure americans heard clear, honest answers as to what happened the night 4 americans died here in benghazi. >> "with all due respect. we have four dead americans. what difference does it make." in contrast.democrats were gushing. some hinting that they hope she runs for president in 2016. we also saw clinton getting emotional. as she talked about those who died.and their families. >> i saw the casket's being near president obama and as the caskets were moved off the plane i was standing with the families. >> catherine: clinton's bottom line.
5:36pm
she says she moved quickly to improve the security of american diplomats. saying she's determined to leave the state department safer and more secure. a subtext to the day. the way clinton handled herself in this testimony will almost surely be rehashed if in fact she 'does' run for president. as for the benghazi attack.no one has been brought to justice. >> pam: since the first days after the attack, republicans have blamed the obama administration for failing to heed warning about threats to u=s diplomats. and for being slow to realize the attack had been planned well in advance of the unrest that was then sweeping through the arab world. the attack on the consulate comes during a night of anti-american protests in both benghazi and cairo, egypt. the crowds angry over a you tube video made in the u=s mocking the prophet mohammed. in the middle of the chaos, as many as 150 heavily armed men take position outside the benghazi compound. just before ten p=m, they begin firing rocket propelled grenades. the ambassador takes refuge in an interior safe room,

along with an aide and two guards, the attackers use gasoline to set the building on fire. as the smoke grows intense, it to the roof and radio for help, but not ambassadorby one a=m, the attackers are gone. libyan civilians find stevens and rush him to a hospital. (chaos) >> pam: doctors try to revive him for 90 minutes, before pronouncing him dead of smoke inhalation. in the following days, the bodies of the four americans are returned. president obama promises to bring their killers to justice. un ambassador susan rice downplays reports of a conspiracy. >> this is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated muslim world. >> pam: but the republican head of the house intelligence committee says the attack has the hallmarks of an al qaeda operation. this was not a demonstration gone bad. this was a clear, targeted, planned event that had both direct fire and indirect fire. it had military style
5:38pm
movements in the effort to come after our diplomatic station. that's what was so concerning about this. and we have lots of questions and a lot of >> catherine: the house has passed a bill that would defuse the debt ceiling crisis -- at least for now. it gives the government enough borrowing authority to last for at least four months. that move would prevent a first-ever default. the senate's democratic leader and the white house say they'll go along with the extension. it also contains a provision that withholds pay for house or senate members if the chamber in which they serve fails to pass a budget plan. that's a slap at the senate -- which hasn't debated a since 2009. >> pam: developing news at this hour. notre dame linebacker manti teo has admitted he lied about his supposed girlfriend. but says he didn't lie from the very beginning. kron 4's dan kerman is here to sort it all out. >> reporter: like many scandals it comes down to
5:39pm
what did he know and when did he know it. and then what did he do about it. it turns out that in december, the all american did find out something was amiss. and continued to stick with the lie. as you've heard, teo supposedly had a serious relationship with a woman online and over the phone. and then was told she died on september 12. teo gave several interviews about this girl. including one on december 8, during the heisman trophy presentation. problem is, on december 6th, two days prior, he learned that his supposed girlfriend was still alive, and yet continued the lie on the 8th. during an interview with katie couric to be broadcast on thursday, teo was asked why he lied and he responded she should put herself in his situation and then ask "what would you do?" >> pam: it wasnow just yesterday, the woman who's photo was used to portray this supposed girlfriend came forward and said she had no part in this hoax. >> reporter: that's right, diane o'meara says the picture was used without her knowledge. in the meantime, the man behind the hoax has not yet publically commented as to why he did this.

5:41pm
5:42pm
5:43pm
now for today's market update. >> pam: stocks end the day higher after getting strong earnings reports from technology companies. such as google. i-b-m. and netflix. on wall street the dow rose 67-points. thanks to a big boost from i-b-m. the nasdaq gained ten. and the s-and-p-500 picked up two points. >> catherine: it was a record quarter for apple. the technology giant reporting today that fourth high. boosted by strong i-phone and i-pad sales. but the popularity of cheaper versions of its mobile devices did pinch the profits a bit. people seem eager to pay 100-dollars less to get a year-old i-phone 4-s
5:44pm
instead of the i-phone 5. apple's stock has also lost more than a quarter of its value over the past four months. pursues confusing? >> joining us now -- kron4 financial expert rob black. >> it was disappointing and confusing. and they did not outperform the steve jobs always wanted to offer for and deliver, massively. one thing that said that their record to be a bit more honest. the new iphone 5 is a lot of technology. a bit more difficult to make. they perhaps make less money on it. and i for difficult margins, 4 s, grade, iphone

5:46pm
deaunderpromise.... >> now, cook... perhaps the best strategy for him would be to make a cheaper iphone. >> catherine: people love the iphone they love the ipad. but there is a bit of a backlash against the company, itself. >> it is interesting that who wanted to purchase apple at $700 per share but now they do not want to purchase the stock at $500 per share. it has gone from $100.50 years ago and it is he doing its job. hyper growth companies, could become a growth company and that is
5:47pm
what is happening. they used to have endless product. no, growth, and, and perhaps later, something else. >> thank you, rob. >> pam: what is on tap for apples this year. gabe slate tech report. >> the ipad mini will be the second version with rett and ed display at a faster processor and a better camera. some consumers are waiting for the retina display it is also $330! the price of the ipad for regional could be cheaper when the ipad version second could be released. the iphone the six could be released and this is what analysts pre jac with a larger

6:09pm
not close to where we were at our peak. >> reporter: to put that in perspective. if your homes was worth 5-600 thousand dollars at the peek. it may have dropped to 2-300 thousand dollars. now things have improved. in fact prices may have come up 20-30 percent , but that's still a far cry from the peek. so many homeowners are waiting. but those that are putting their house on the market are seeing an added benefit. with the lack of inventory and the amount of interest in purchasing, we are seeing multiple offers, 6, 7 offers. and that is helping to drodrive the price up. >> jacqueline: >> reporter: as for what's ahead, experts say look for home sales numbers to drop over the next few months, not due to the bad economy, but the lack of inventory. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> pam: city college on the brink of closure.after an accrediting commision found
